Clarence Gatemouth Brown
The Original Peacock Recordings

MR SUIT

Sensational Texan guitar blues. Gatemouth comes out of T-Bone Walker. Don Robey started the Peacock label, just to put his records out. Without Clarence there is no Johnny Guitar Watson. Killer, killer, killer.



Ain't No Grave The Life And Legacy Of Brother Claude Ely
The flaming Appalachian gospel you can hear in Little Richard, James Brown, Elvis, especially Jerry Lee. Songs and sermons, 300-plus pages of riveting oral history, lyrics, 290 photos. Total Dust To Digital class.






Amede Ardoin Mama, I'll Be Long Gone: The Complete Recordings, 1929-1934
At the wild, searing fountainhead of Zydeco: the black accordionist and singer with white fiddler Dennis McGee, on Afro-Creole scorchers, waltzes, blues and breakdowns. Cajun's Robert Johnson.



Lavern Baker La Vern
Her 1956 Atlantic debut, key to the splitting of jazz singing into rhythm and blues and soul. Lavern was Memphis Minnie's niece. Her stage-name in her teens was 'Miss Sharecropper'.



Lavern Baker La Vern Baker
Rocking and rolling. Classy, tough.




Bandera Doo Wop
For Your Precious Love started out as a Bandera recording (subsequently leased to Vee-Jay), made by co-owner Vi Muszynski and there are eleven Impressions sides here, seven of them previously unissued.



Cecil Barfield South Georgia Blues
The king of mush mouth country blues.



Pastor T.L. Barrett Like A Ship... (Without A Sail)
Gospel soul classic from 1971, with Gene Barge, Phil Upchurch and Richard Evans, besides the rapturous Youth For Christ Choir. Good enough for Donny Hathaway, good enough for me.



Dave Bartholomew Carnival Day
From the end of the 1940s, amazingly heady with New Orleans traditions and innovativeness, a riotous blend of heavily syncopated Caribbean rhythms and laid-back Southern swagger.



The Beale Street Sheiks Chicken You Can Roost Behind The Moon
The seminal Memphis bluesmen Frank Stokes and Dan Sane, recording for Paramount in the late 1920s.



The Big Beat The Dave Bartholomew Songbook
Hats off every time to the founding father of New Orleans rhythm and blues. DB holds the master recipe for soul-ska-rhumba-blues gumbo. Just check the tracklisting for a sense of his achievement. Don.
